WOW: words on waiting

I have learned a lot about waiting in the past few years. And I am still learning about waiting today.

I decided every so often (weekly, monthly, who knows....), I'll post some words on waiting that have encouraged me in my times of waiting on the Lord. Verses, poems, songs, stories, quotes, etc.

Today this simple verse is one that offers truth, hope, and a promise to those of us who wait. We are all waiting, but WHO are we waiting for? The last line reminds me that we are blessed when we wait for HIM.

Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
he rises to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
B L E S S E D are all who wait for him!
Isaiah 30:18
